John Bankes of Bank Newton
Commoners shows that John m. Elizabeth, dau of William Clapham of Barnsley (sic), and was father of Thomas (whose wife was not named) father of John father of Henry. Visitation (Yorkshire, 1563-4, Banke of Banke Newton) starts with Thomas father (by Elsabeth or Alice, daughter of William Clapham of Beamsley) of Thomas father of John father of Henry. The following combines these and so, for the next 2 or 3 generations, should be viewed as speculative and therefore provisional and subject to revision.
